Sidney The Gecko - Sample Book Pages

Sidney the gecko wasn’t like the rest,
When the sun rose in the east, he faced west!
He lay in the shade on his comfy deck chair,
Believing this gave his skin the best care.

Sidney (the gecko that didn’t like the sun!) is a captivating story about a ‘Day Gecko’ called Sidney who sits in the shade all day. ‘Day Geckos’ usually like to stay in the sun all day to get full sun exposure (for vital Vitamin D absorption).

However, Sidney does the opposite and sits in the shade. Read the book to find out how Sidney discovers the importance of sunlight, and how exposure to the sun plays a vital role in helping the body to stay healthy.
